Centre for Quantum Computation and Communication Technology - GU (CQC2T)

Advanced optical measurement experiment

Griffith University

The Centre for Quantum Computation and Communication Technology is home to the world’s largest team working to develop a scalable spin-based quantum computing architecture in silicon. Research is focused: on quantum communications; optical quantum computation; and silicon quantum computation. The centre uses significant research strengths across six Australian universities in 17 coordinated programs and forms one of the largest combined and focused efforts in quantum computation and communication in the world. Research at the Griffith University's Quantum Optics and Information Laboratory is investigating the use of quantum states of light, primarily single and entangled photons, to realize key advances in quantum computing and communications protocols.
